As the National Post reported in March, 2017, based on an Environment Canada document, Environment and climate change Minister Catherine McKenna was advised shortly after taking office that Canada's carbon price would have to be $100 per tonne by 2020 (not $50 in 2022), to achieve Trudeau's ...
But a carbon tax would still hit us at the pumps before the refund. This would be a boon for the sale of more fuel-efficient vehicles like hybrids, and especially for fully electric cars since no carbon tax would be paid to fuel them. This, in turn, would spur the development of an energy infrastructure based less ...

Is everyone in your life talking about I, Tonya, or just me? I saw it last weekend, and I thought there was too much focus on the bumbling idiots and not enough skating. Also, as many other people have mentioned, it felt like the writer was trying really hard to get laughs at moments that weren't really that ...
carbon fiber is made from a chemical called acrylonitrile. Currently, producers make acrylonitrile from oil, ammonia, oxygen and an expensive catalyst. The process produces a lot of heat and yields a toxic byproduct. And, because acrylonitrile is made from petroleum, the cost of carbon fiber tends to rise ...
With the effects of global climate change on everyone's mind, natural building also has the potential to act as a form of carbon sequestration. Many Ontario natural builders are beginning to talk about net zero carbon buildings, where less carbon is released than is sequestered in a finished building.
Tidal wetlands come in many forms, but they could be more alike below the surface than anyone realized. Whether it's a mangrove forest in Florida, a freshwater swamp in Virginia or a saltwater marsh in Oregon, the amount of carbon locked in a soil sample from each of these coastal ecosystems is roughly ...
